    Well, OK. But I'm expecting a rather one sided treatment.
    You are already receiving a one-sided treatment by way of MSM. You asked the question regarding just who it was that was being killed indiscriminately, not I.

    If you want your questions asked, watch the documentary. If the questions were just lip service and rhetoric, I understand completely.

    Well, no, you are right. I did ask the question, and I accept that the MSM treatment is one-sided, but not any more so or less so than the documentary. None the less it's a bit more information on which to form a more informed opinion.

    Thanks.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    I consider most information presented by the media to be towards the extreme, of whichever side.

    So, for me, I try to walk the middle, to find the middle, in between the extremes. Somewhere in between is the truth.

    Did WW2 create more fascists?

    They would have said that if our ground troops hadn't been able to take islands close enough to the mainland, we couldn't have nuke Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

    Okay - good reply. I actually agree with you that we can't win a war by air alone - I was just trying to yank your chain, and you provided a better response. BZ to you for that one!

    No, you were trying to get over on me and I smoked your butt; now, you're trying to save face.
